Lost in this world called Life...


Busy is a word used by me several, several times lately
I haven't blogged much because I barely have time to myself lately
I started school...I'm in my 3rd week going into my 4th week
I'm taking 2 classes a week and they are 4 hrs each class...ugh :(
Classes are 10 wks long and even though they just started, I'm ready for them to be over
I decided that I needed a jump start for my career so going back to school and getting my associates was the best decision I ever made
Once I'm done with my associates degree which should take no longer than 3 yrs max I'm moving onto my bachelors
Its kinda scary of me back in school but since I've been back my brain is loving all this new stuff I'm learning
Your brain really needs stimulation and my brain really loves being challenged.
Even at work I feel I do my best when I'm challenged and somewhat under pressure
And I'm glad I'm writing about this so in a few years when I'm done with school I can look back and read how I felt when I first went back to school.
I might think differently then :)

My Lifestyle Change-

I've been on my "diet" I mean lifestyle change for 33 days and have lost 10 lbs already
I am so proud of myself
I started counting my calories and what I put into my mouth
Everyone is responsible for their own actions and I was the first to blame my eating habits on other people
I got this way on my own and I need to be the first one to fix it
So after changing my eating habits and counting calories I say I'm doing great
I haven't even worked out either...again busy, busy and no time to work out
I'm doing it the healthy way and before I know it I will be at my goal weight and I will know exactly what to do to keep my weight at that healthy weight
Also, if I want something that badly I just take 1 bite and give the rest to hubby and that satisfys my temptation, its so great

I am off to do homework...have a great weekend :)

Reality has set in...

I have said this before and I'm going to say it again...people really treat you differently when you don't have kids. And most of the time...unfortunately its family.

I am not a private person...I do say some things especially on Facebook that I should keep to myself but I don't. I like to share what I'm going through with other people who are going through the same thing as I. I posted something on facebook one night and woke up the next morning to 3 emails from people I went to high school with that are going through the same thing as I and had no fear in sharing their story. I explained my story and all the up to date information. I want people to learn from me and maybe we can share our stories and who knows maybe bring us closer together.

I am not only going through not being able to conceive but I'm also struggling with my weight. I have always been a skinny kid growing up, always outside playing. My parents never allowed us to stay inside and watch tv, which was a good thing. I also grew up for a few years out in the country so I had to walk everywhere or ride my bike. I was fine up until I was a senior in high school and had a car and got a sit down job at a desk. Then I got married at 19 and it went downhill from there. I lost 60 lbs 2 years ago but it slowly creeped back on. Not sure why I didn't catch it earlier but I didn't. So fast forward to current day and I am back on Weight Watchers and started last week and weighed in on Monday and lost 4 lbs...YAY!! I have 50 lbs to lose in 5 mths. I am not only eating better but exercising on a daily schedule.

2010 was a good year. It wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst.
I have a feeling 2011 will be a good year for Kevin and I.
Christmas Eve we had family over at my house and had a good time. Watched my niece and nephews open presents. Then Christmas Day we spent at Kevin's sisters house and watched all of my nieces and nephews open their gifts. It was a good time. Reminded me of the time we lived with them almost 5 yrs ago and watched the kids christmas morning. We had some good times.
New Years Eve was eventful. Started out good but didn't end so well. I hope that isn't how the rest of the year is going to be...

I started my diet a week ago and have been doing very well. I am walking on the treadmill 5 days a week starting out at 20 mins and working my way up 5-10 mins each week. I don't want to get bored so I'm trying to mix it up. I am starting out with mini goals monthly and hope to be at my goal weight by May. My first mini goal is to lose 10 lbs by Feb. 1st.

Happy New Year!!
